F&P Residence

1+1=1 Claudio Silvestrin Giuliana Salmaso architects and planners with Simona Marchetti
Puglia, Italy
completed 2013
90 sqm

This private house is conceived as a thinking retreat overlooking the marvelous blue sea in the west coast of Puglia. In the middle of this unspoiled plot of land, hidden from the street by centenary olive trees, there is an Ncurtaturu, a vernacular dwelling with protruding stone walls. The design choice is to place the new residence inside the Ncurtaturu as a wooden prefabricated box detached from the stone walls of the existing structure. Metaphorically speaking, it expresses the harmonic coexistence of past and present, stone (hard) and wood (soft), masculine and feminine.
